Wiki

Emilio Estevez (English pronunciation: /ɛˈmiːljoʊ ˈɛstɨvɛz/; born May 12, 1962) is an American actor, film director, and writer. He started his career as an actor and is well-known for being a member of the acting Brat Pack of the 1980s, starring in The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire. He is also known for Repo Man, The Mighty Ducks and its sequels, Maximum Overdrive, Bobby (which he also wrote and directed), and his performances in Western films such as Young Guns and its sequel. One of his first appearances was as "Two-Bit" in The Outsiders.

Estevez was born in Staten Island, New York, the oldest child of actor Martin Sheen (born Ramón Estévez) and artist Janet Templeton. His siblings are Ramon Estevez, Charlie Sheen (born Carlos Estevez), and Renée Estevez. Estevez initially attended school in the New York public school system but transferred to a prestigious private academy once his father's career took off. He lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side until his family moved West in 1968 when Sheen was cast in Catch-22. When Estevez was 11 years old, his father bought the family a portable movie camera. Growing up in Malibu, California, he rejected the local private school (it was "for parents who have everything except a relationship with their children") in favor of Santa Monica High School. Estevez, his brother Charlie, and their high school friends, Sean, Chris Penn, Chad Lowe and Rob Lowe used the camera to make short films, which Estevez would often write. Estevez also appeared in a short anti-nuclear power film produced at his high school, entitled "Meet Mr. Bomb." Emilio was 14 when he accompanied his father to the Philippines, where Sheen was shooting Apocalypse Now. Estevez appeared as an extra in Apocalypse Now, but the scenes were deleted. After Apocalypse Now Sheen was unaware that his teenage son was forging ideas of his own about a career in film. When they returned to Los Angeles, Estevez co-wrote and starred in a high-school play about Vietnam veterans called Echoes of an Era and invited his parents to watch it. Sheen recalls being astonished by his son's performance, and "began to realise: my God, he’s one of us. He had that same deep and personal thing. I thought, ah, he’s cursed." After graduating Santa Monica High in 1980, he refused to go to college and instead went into acting. Unlike his brother Charlie, Emilio and his other siblings did not adopt their father's stage name. Emilio reportedly liked the double ‘E’ initials, and "didn't want to ride into the business as Martin Sheen's son."

His first role was in a drama produced by the Catholic Paulist order. Soon after, he made his stage debut with his dad in Mister Roberts at Burt Reynolds' Dinner theater in Jupiter, Florida (this was the only job his dad ever placed him in). Since then, father and son worked together in the 1982 ABC-TV film about juveniles in jail, In the Custody of Strangers, in which Emilio did the casting.
